Ever wonder what efforts the Metropolitan Museum of Art makes in the preservation of its photography collection? Here is your chance to find out. Nora Kennedy, Conservator in Charge of the Photograph Conservation Department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will spend two hours with a small group of our members to chat about the Met's conservation effots.

We are excited to bring back this event that has been so popular with our members in the past.
